Draganfly Innovations and Radio Hill Technologies Join Forces in C-UAS Jam and Pursuit Solution

Pursuit drone and jamming technology offers affordable counter-drone capability.


Portland, Oregon-based Radio Hill Technologies (RHT) has teamed up with Canadian drone manufacturer, Saskatoon-based Draganfly Innovations Inc. to explore an emerging counter-drone technology.

Radio Hill, inventor of the Dronebuster, a 5 lb., 21-inch long, handheld counter-drone detection and jamming system, recently completed a large sale of Block 3 Dronebusters for the United States Army. With over 19 years’ experience developing robust, high-performance drones, Draganfly is the world’s longest-running multi-rotor UAV manufacturer. A Draganflyer system flown by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in 2013 was credited as the first sUAS to save a person’s life. As this was an industry-first, the Draganflyer was subsequently included in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.

In this partnership, Draganfly and Radio Hill are combining the ability to detect and deter nuisance or nefarious drones with the capability to “follow them home”. The Dronebuster interrupts radio signals in the ISM, UHF HAM, and GPS bands, which are used on consumer drones. At this point a Draganflyer UAV is launched to pursue the adversary drone back to its operator, capturing evidence with imagery and position information. Draganfly’s CEO, Cameron Chell commented, “This innovative concept provides an affordable deterrence, pursuit, and surveillance solution. We are thrilled to partner with Radio Hill to get this easy-to-use technology in the hands of facility security personnel all over the world.”

About Radio Hill Technologies
Radio Hill Technologies was formed around the efforts of three entrepreneurs in the summer of 2015. During that time, California was exposed to regular and significant wild fires. Firefighting efforts were negatively impacted by drone operators flying over the fires, and preventing firefighting aircraft from safely extinguishing the fires. The founders of Radio Hill were determined to create a tool that law enforcement can use to keep these drones away from restricted areas.
